Instead of an electric scooter for people with physical disabilities
How about a lifesize version of the BristleBot, in place of the
standard wheelchair? It could be controlled by leaning toward te
direction of motion, I think, or maybe leaning away from direction
of motion. Or maybe that would depend on how the bristles were
shaped. I bet you could get it
to jump curbs if you made the
bristles long and strong enough.

that translated leaning into motion but I guess that would
happen anyway with this.
